About Ann Marie

If it concerns real estate, I know about it

I fell in love with Leelanau and never looked back.

I arrived fresh out of college and I’ve lived here ever since.  I know this area, the back roads and hidden places. I’ve walked it, lived it, and loved it. I know where to find the best sandy beaches and the best communities to raise children, to retire, or to invest.

This has been my community my entire adult life. I’ve committed my time to initiatives that make things better. My sense is that people I meet trust me. Being deeply involved keeps me ahead of the game and knowing about homes, and land, the market and opportunities.

I pay attention to details.

And I’m service oriented. For 20 years I had the privilege of working with a creative and sophisticated team at The Homestead, America’s Freshwater Resort in Glen Arbor. The best take away—always pay attention to details and exceed expectations. It’s how I do business today; it’s how I live my life.

If it concerns real estate, I know it.

I list and sell a variety of properties, from small cabins to a multimillion beach houses; land on the lake, with a view, or land to farm; I also handle commercial properties.  I know the area, and the market. I have experience that gives me an edge, and benefits my clients. Whether working as a Seller’s Agent or Buyer’s Agent I am research driven—the more knowledge one has about a property, the stronger the negotiating positions.

I recognize state and federal environmental issues.

Wetlands, critical dunes, high-risk erosion, and endangered species. I understand county permitting requirements—health, soil and erosion, road commissions. And local zoning in 11 townships and 3 villages. I work with surveyors, appraisers, attorneys, architects, builders, bankers, trust officers, engineers,  title companies, home stagers, home inspectors, and consultants for the tough issues.

I’m available when you need me.

I know the value of time, and I make a point not to waste yours. Look over the properties I have listed for sale. Or search for other properties. You’ll find my website makes it possible for you to view all listings in the market, and it’s updated daily!

Call, e-mail, or stop in to see me. Let’s talk about your dreams and making them happen here. Leelanau County is the most beautiful place in America and one of the country’s best kept secrets. When the timing is right, no matter how long it takes, I’ll help you find what you are looking for.  It’s never too soon to start.
